Haley's Kindergarten Graduation

I have already said that last week was extremely busy.  In addition to all the things I mentioned in the last blog, on Saturday morning Haley graduated from kindergarten.  Kindergarten graduation is very big in this country.

It was a typical morning when groups are here.  We were rushing and trying to make everything go as smoothly as possible for the group.  And, there was no power.  Because we all had somewhere different to be after graduation, we were planning on taking three cars, something we try to avoid.  Due to circumstances beyond our control, we quickly learned we could get by on two.  Nicole, the girls and I went flying out from the mission house trying to get Haley there on time.  We made it.  With a few minutes to spare.  We even had time to take our family pictures before graduation.

And, one with the teachers.

I had to take one of Emma Kate, too.

The decorations were pretty.  Is there something missing, Kim?

The graduation pretty much started on time, a rare event in Honduras.  There were four kindergarten classes with 21 students each.  Each class sang one song and then graduated. 

The event started on time and the whole thing lasted one hour.  The public schools could learn some lessons from this.

We then went to Chili's to celebrate.  The graduation girl got a molten.

She shared it.

Watching big sister graduate from kindergarten was exhausting to Emma.

It was a fun morning.
